About a month ago while I was getting some photos ready to post for sale, I decided my bleeding heart arch across the forest picture would be even better with a more abstract background; so, I tried playing around in paint.net with using multiple semi transparent layers with different layer blend modes as well as taking it back in to picassa afterward to retouch a few areas that were still not soft enough.

The other day when I needed to go to the post office, the sun was out and the weather was warm–perfect for a brisk walk; so, I grabbed my camera and headed out on foot to get some photos and some exercise on the way. When I got to the old elementary school I stopped to take pictures of the tulips there because the plants growing around them made such an interesting background. It looked similar in leaf shape and color to the dusky broad leaved red eucalyptus that is available at most craft stores for use in floral arrangements, only it also had large spiny thorns and little yellow flowers. After searching around on the internet a bit I think it might be a variety of red Japanese Barberry.

Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as traditional red ones , and a pink native variety to Oregon in the backyard–since they are the first things to bloom in my yard each year. Last year I transplanted these red ones from between several ferns to a roomier and slightly sunnier location. Hopefully they will start filling out a little better now. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on my bleeding hearts and on the sunlight out the kitchen window for the perfect photo opportunity. A few weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on several separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.

In this softly focused macro photo, a red bleeding heart hangs from its stem alone in the sun as beads of rainwater glisten on it’s leaves. Beyond are the dark shadows of the forest and the remains of last autumn’s brown leaves strewn on the ground.

Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as traditional red ones , and a pink native variety in the backyard. Originally I just had these pink one’s which I got at an earth day fair back when I lived out in Gresham. It was one of many native species of plants being given away that day to encourage people to grow more native species in their yards. At first mine did not do well because I had them in a shallow planter bowl. Then I realized that bleeding hearts actually have long tap roots, so I transplanted them out back, near a path we are building down into the forest,  into a bottomless planter  made from an old tire I hauled out of our woods which looked a bit like a big flower to me because of the zig zag edge that was already cut into it when I found it. Since then they have really filled out and started blooming more prolifically. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on my bleeding hearts and on the sunlight out the kitchen window for the perfect photo opportunity. A few weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.

A friend recently informed me, when she was over for a visit, that she had always thought bleeding hearts only came in pink. I am so glad they come in multiple colors, because I have three different varieties growing at my house 😀

In this dreamy, softly focused, black and white photo, a branch of white bleeding hearts whose blossoms glow in the sun, arcs upward. Several other sprigs of heart shaped flowers hang downward in the background while patterns of sunlight and shadow create star-like shapes on the leaves in the lower right corner. The darker background causes the flowers to stand out more.

I have to say I LOVE my yard!
Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as the red ones blooming in the backyard. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on them and on the sunlight out the window for the perfect photo opportunity. Two weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.

Covered in raindrops and glistening in the sun, this White bleeding hearts plant has an arc of white heart shaped flowers in the forefront as well as several others looking tiny in the distance where they hide amongst the shelter of the foliage. The rain drops fall down the face of the middle flower like teardrops.

I have to say I LOVE my yard!
Every spring I look forward to the  white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, I love their old fashioned beauty. They are the first blossoms in my yard each spring, followed by the red bleeding hearts, and the pink ones, blooming in the backyard. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on them and on the sunlight out the window for the perfect photo opportunity. Last week I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds. After looking the first batch of pictures, while doing some editing, it occurred to me that they would look lovely against a dark background. so the next time the sun was out I grabbed a dark blue binder we had and stuck it behind the blossoms in the photos. This worked beautifully after editing to soften the background as well as making some other artistic editing choices. I may experiment with some other background choices the next time the lighting is good. Here are just a few, I’ll be posting more here soon….

Recently I used details of my photo Gnat Creek Flowers #2 to create a matching set of stationery, postage and stickers. I love how the delicate tiny white wildflowers catch the glow of the sunlight. Something about how they look with the interesting abstract look of the splotchy warm brown mottled river rock behind them is just beautiful.

Yesterday while looking through some of my images on zazzle.com, I realized I had neglected to create a poster out of this fabulous photograph of a yellow and black striped butterfly perched on the lilac bush in our back yard. Several years ago when there were some beautiful large butterflies flitting around the garden my Daughter insisted I snap a picture of one for her I chased that butterfly around the back yard for what seemed like hours with my daughter’s help keeping an eye on where it went until I could catch a decent photo of it holding still.

When I created this poster and some other items for sale out of this picture yesterday, I decided I’d better figure out exactly what kind of butterfly I had a picture of.  So after some sleuthing on the internet,  I learned that it is probably a Western Tiger Swallowtail (it could possibly be a Canadian Tiger Swallowtail, they look very similar to me) . It was also interesting to learn that the Oregon swallowtail became the Oregon state insect in 1979. I learn all sorts of interesting things in the process of selling my photography 😉

update: Although i originally thought these flowers were lilacs, I have recently discovered they are actually the flowers of a butterfly bush.

Here are the poster, and some of the other items I have created using this marvelous photo:

Western Tiger Swallowtail butterfly on pink lilacs print

A strikingly beautiful yellow and black striped Western Tiger Swallowtail  sips nectar from pink lilac flowers. The softly focused green foliage of the lilac bush sets up a lovely background for this photograph.

NEW CUSTOM BUTTERFLY SHOES!

Western Tiger Swallowtail butterfly on pink lilacs kedsshoe

On the toes and heels of these custom  shoes is a strikingly beautiful yellow Western Tiger Swallowtail with black stripes sipping nectar from a cluster of pink lilac flowers in front of a softly focused background of green foliage. The shoes’ sides are in a colorful fun floral print. Shown here with pink and yellow trim, slate green insole, and cream mid sole–this shoe also looks great with black soles.

A couple summers ago I was camping with my family up at Ensign Ranch, Cle Elum, Washington when I noticed this heart shaped rock on the gravel road there.
